LONDON (AFP) - A protester scaled the home of the British justice minister and set up camp on the roof to demand greater rights for fathers on Tuesday, an activist group said.

Photos showed a tent on top of a house and a protester hanging a banner reading "No rights? Go MAD".

"He has set up camp on top of the roof and has enough supplies to last several days," the group New Fathers 4 Justice said in a statement.

A spokesman for Justice Minister Chris Grayling said the ongoing incident was a matter for the police. Police were not immediately available for comment.
